lefty shears...
Posted: Wednesday, October 03, 2007 4:22:50 PM

I am in the market for new shears.  There are so many out there and for the price that they run i want to make the right choice.  Does anyone have any advice for a good quality pair of lefty shears?

Hikari shears are always the best or so I think, but they are also very pricey, I do know that they have some lefty's styles so you should google them and take a look and see if they are anything you would be interested in, I have a pair that I have had over 20 years and they are in great shape. Depending on where you live will depend on if their is a rep there so you could try some out, I mean for the price you would want to be able to hold them and try them before getting them. hope this helps

Hikari makes great shears and I have some friends that have Hikari left shears and love them but you should definitely try them first to see if you like the weight, size, feel, etc.  In my area there is a distributor that has demos so you can try them first.  Find out if there is a distributor in your area.

I have also heard that Kasho makes good lefty shears.  I hate Musashi shears so I would not recommend them.

Good luck!

As a sharpener and shears distributor, I have to agree with Hikari. Another great option in addition to the ones given already is Tara, especially for a variety of lefty options. I had one customer that needed a lefty thinner with at least 40 teeth, and Tara was the only "known" brand that fit the bill.
